Canada Ends Costa Rica’s Golden Generation To Set Up Mexico Semifinal

For the first time since 2007, Canada is back in the semifinals of the Gold Cup after a commanding 2-0 win over Costa Rica at AT&T Stadium in Arlington on Sunday night.  

The immediate consequence is that Canada plays Mexico on Thursday at NRG Stadium in Houston. The long-term implication is that Canada, heading into 2022 World Cup qualifying, can make a serious claim as to now being Concacaf’s third-best team.

Dang It Honduras, It Should’ve Been The USMNT Losing To A Team That Didn’t Register A Shot On Target

Honduras snatched Concacaf’s final spot at the Olympics away from the USMNT in March. Four months later, Los Catrachos did the USMNT proud by dominating a game against Romania and still finding an incredible way to lose 1-0. I’m sure that USMNT players are punching the air while watching the Honduras vs Romania highlights.

Let me remind you why the USMNT isn’t at the Olympics.

Mexico Wins Group A, But El Salvador Looks Great Ahead Of World Cup Qualifying

Thanks to Chaka Rodríguez’s 26th-minute goal, Mexico defeated El Salvador 1-0 on Sunday night and won Gold Cup Group A, meaning that the United States and El Tri can’t possibly meet until the final. 

But based on the evidence of the group stage, if either side overlooks their opponents in the quarterfinals or semifinals, they’re going home. 

Germany's Olympic Team Abandons Friendly Match After Alleged Racist Abuse

If You Enjoyed Messi Finally Lifting The Copa, You’ll Love Costa Rica At The Gold Cup

When Brazil was preparing to take on Argentina in the Copa América final, it was widely acknowledged that while many Brazilians were tacitly supporting the Seleção, they’d also partially warmed to the idea of Lionel Messi finally reaping from what he’d painstakingly sown over the last 16 years with the Albiceleste — so much so that Neymar felt compelled to issue a stinging rebuke on Instagram that told those Brazilians to “go to hell.” 

Cheap-Shot Punch To The Stomach, Karate Kick Goal And More Nonsense Feature In Concacaf Classic

I’m not going to lie, it’s not easy to go from watching the Euro and Copa América finals to blanky staring at Costa Rica fight off Guadeloupe 3-1 in the Gold Cup. Concacaf’s skill level might not be that of UEFA and CONMEBOL, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t entertainment.

Why You Should Watch This Summer’s Gold Cup, Plus One Reason To Not Watch

Given the number of major international soccer tournaments this summer, it’s easy to overlook the Gold Cup. Make no mistake: You absolutely should to pay attention to Concacaf’s premier competition. Here’s why you need to watch the 2021 Gold Cup and, just as importantly, how to watch Gold Cup matches on TV and streaming in the U.S.

St. Vincent And The Grenadines Play Gold Cup Qualifier With 13 Players And No Goalie

St. Vincent and the Grenadines was forced to play a Gold Cup qualifier with 13 players — 11 starters and two subs — and no goalkeeper on Friday against Haiti. To no one’s surprise, Haiti won 6-1, moving to within one win of qualifying for this summer’s Concacaf Gold Cup.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines was the victim of reported visa issues ahead of the match in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It never helps when one side has 10 more bench players available than the other, especially when one team doesn’t have a goalie. 

El Momento "¡Trágame, Tierra!" Del Arquero De Haití, Josué Duverger

No fue una buena noche la de ayer para Josué Duverger, arquero de Haití. Su selección perdió 3-0 ante Canadá, en un duelo que definía un cupo para el octagonal final de la Concacaf rumbo a Catar 2022, y una parte importante de la derrota recayó en sus hombros. O más bien, en sus confundidos pies.

Duverger fue fundamental para mantener su arco cerrado en el primer tiempo.

Sin embargo, apenas se reinició el complemento, el golero se vio envuelto en un blooper que hoy se repite en pantallas de todo el mundo.
